C.A. Larmer is a gem! I have read every Roxy story and they only keep getting better. I can't wait for the next story in this series. I only wish she would write a sequel to the The Agatha Christie Book Club. This is a great story, not predictable, fun and flirty. You will want to keep the pages turning in this who-dunnit from beginning to end.
